Synopsis:
Thoughtful and reflective, this best-selling text on marriage and family therapy opens with a groundbreaking discussion of value-sensitive care, the ecology of therapy, and acculturation. Armed with this extensive knowledge and insight, students then delve into the traditional and contemporary issues surrounding marriage and family counseling today, broken down into legal, ethical and professional considerations.   The fully revised fifth edition includes a number of new topics, including multicultural issues reflecting institutional oppression; the significance of supervision in both skill acquisition and professional acculturation in one's early career; nontraditional family care; conflicts between legal and ethical obligations; emerging issues in MFT licensure; and ethical and empirical considerations related to evidence-based care.   New Features  Case exampleslocated in three special chapters allow readers to consider realistic client situations and considerations as they cover related topics and content in the text.   ;Reflections ; featureslocated throughout the text offer illustrations and accompanying stimulus questions that promote discussions and thought in graduate classes, group settings, or other forums of professional dialogue.   A revised discussion of value-sensitive care and the ecology of therapyconcerning layers of values and sources of power within families allow readers to examine the distinct and often competing personal and systemic factors affecting their care for clients.   An emphasis on professional acculturation in decision-makingprovides pre-service counselors with a unique framework for examining dissonance and finding balance in the personal and professional roles of therapists.    An examination of mandatory versus discretionary actions in ethical behaviorhelps students distinguish between the compelling requirements in ethical codes versus their responsible freedom for judgment based on their professional acculturation in ethical decision-making.   An expanded discussion of multicultural concernsgive readers the opportunity to consider both established and novel strategies for increasing their culturally sensitive care with individuals, couples, and families.   Coverage of emergent legal issuesand recent court cases give readers the opportunity to contemplate their existing therapy, supervisory, instructional, or research practices in light of contemporary legal decisions.   Coverage of new professional issues and researchallow readers to reflect upon the most current information affecting their professional identity, options for professional development, and anticipated challenges for care with individuals, couples, and families. A revised format and updated referencesprovides students with an even more thoughtful presentation of information as well as a significant number of new references and resources.
